eReaders probably wouldn't work. They're pretty flimsy, and most don't have keyboards (unless you wanna fork out for a Kindle Keyboard). What about some cheap Android tablets? You can put Quickoffice on them for spreadsheet editing.
the touchscreen/stylus ones look more suited
I am looking at a HTML form with a group of checkboxes and maybe a canvas element for sigtures

currently we use a clipboard with 3 pages, 1 pen, 1 number Card
the question still remains Can I replace the clipboards and papers with eReaders?
Maybe you should test the process first. Knock up a little spreadsheet, put it on the reader and walk around and order some product and get it picked and packed.
Then compare it to using paper and pencil.
I suspect in a non-automated warehouse and a range of staff, the paper will win.
I also suspect paper is less environmentally damaging than electronics.
Paper also has longer battery life.
Not as much fun though ......
